This has been a challenging week in so many ways. Sadly my cousin passed away last weekend and the whirlwind of emotions that has engulfed my entire family is somewhat overwhelming but I spent some time by myself to ask for the lesson. I always ask for the lesson in every situation. My beautiful Rachel was taken too young, she wasn't even 30 years old. I remember having a very distinct conversation with her once, two years ago before I started the ProLeague. I told her about my idea to start a blog. I wanted to use my writing to help people in tough situations and she told me she'd read every single piece, she was battling her own demons and said my writing helped her find the light. I cry as I write this now, as I realise the weight of the responsibility I took upon myself when I promised her I'd write and write and write if it meant it would help someone like her in a difficult circumstance. Now she is gone but there's a gentle reminder for me to keep being authentic, to continue doing what I know I was put on this earth to do.. and most of all, a reminder that life is precious and we mustn't waste time being entangled with worry, unforgiveness, trapped within our own fears and self doubt. Learn to believe in yourself, be who you want to be - don't wish for it, intentionally put in the work and just BE who you want to be. And be present. Understand that in each exact moment of your life, you're a breathing, fiery miracle that has gifts and talents the world so needs. 
This whole ordeal has placed a fire in me, I cannot wait to see the beautiful things that come forth in the ProLeague and the Fight Vault.. and Rach, it'll be because of, and all for YOU 💜
